    The final week did not produce any changes in the Top 4 and they likely will all advance to the Regional Tournament barring any first round upset in district. Butler, Fairdale, and Fern Creek all received 1st seeds in their district tournament allowing them to meet #4 seeds in the 1st round. Getting to the District Championship is almost as important if not more than winning it as both teams advance to the Regional tournament. After the final...

    I agree that the Tigers have not looked the same of late compared to how they looked winning the KOB, but tonight's win over Fairdale should not cast any negative doubt on how they are trending. Fairdale like 5 or so other 6th regions teams are just tough to beat. There is some depth at the top of the 6th and Fairdale is squarely in that mix of very solid teams. They were 12-1 heading into this game since the LIT and the only loss was to...

    Two Louisville 6th region teams at Fern Creek's Senior night went toe to toe like a heavyweight fight the way basketball is fun to watch. Crowd got their money's worth and both teams are going to come away with positives to take. Fern Creek jumped out early, but the way Sullivan shoots for Fairdale there is not a lead they can't come back from. They were down 17 in the first half and still managed to take a 1 point lead briefly in the 2nd...

    I agree that Trevon is cut out of a different cloth, humble as can be. He does so many things well to be a kid that does not need to have his ego stroked. The thing that describes his best is a fierce competitor. He just plays so hard to help his team win. One thing though, he stopped playing with his local team after his 15U season. He played 16U on the NIKE EYBL circuit (16U division) with the Travelers and he immediately started...

    I have a the same feeling dognation, and I won't get into individual play or particular coaching strategies that do have an impact. But in generalities it has been mentioned by others and I agree that this team is better when they are able to play the underdog role. After winning the KOB that seemed to vanish and I did not see the hungry dog or chip on the shoulder that propelled them in the past. Hungry dogs run faster and they did not seem...

    One week to go and the real fun begins in post season when a ranking will not matter because only one team will be left heading to Rupp. This past week produced a couple of key games that determined the rankings shift ever so slightly. Here is the rankings heading into the final games left from the regular season 1. Butler (24-2): Butler took care of Doss to earn the #1 seed in district play last week and for good measure they also beat...

    JR Mathis from Kentucky Country Day in Louisville is a true freshman at Navy which is not the norm. The Service Academies are known for having the true freshmen go to the Prep Academies. You can only be there 4 years, unlike a college that can red shirt a player and have 5 years. Unless they plan to use you as a freshmen, it is better for both player and the academy to have that initial year at one of their Preps.

    Shame on whom? We can speculate all we want, but to assign blame on which ever team you want to heap it out upon seems judgemental to me. I might be missing your point and if I am, sorry to question your point.

    Doss is more battle tested, but Butler did play both Trinity and Ballard very tough in big games at the LIT. It should be a great game between two extremely tough teams, but I favor Doss in this one.

    The end of the season draws near as only 2 weeks remain before tourney play begins. We learned several things so far, most impressive is that Doss, Fern Creek, and Butler all could very well be Top 10 teams in the State of KY. Any of these 3 could end up heading to Rupp in a month from now without surprising anybody if they do. The rankings this week shake out with the top 9 teams in solid clusters of three and within each cluster those three...

    Adam Kunkel deserves strong consideration as well. If these two were taken away from their teams, it would be devastating which Cooper already found out. Of course they are dominating players like several others in the state, but yet they are true team players that make those around them so much better. They each will do well in college where their ability to fit in to a system will be an easy transition as they don't have to be the stars...

    Trevon Faulkner has to be a leading candidate for Mr. Basketball. All the kid does is win and in the process makes his teammates better. He excels in all facets of the game.

    That is a very good win for Spencer County as PRP is talented with or without Trey Hill available. He has been out and I suspect he is still not playing, but regardless a nice win. To suggest Coach Mabrey was out coached, then Coach Burns had to be doing some good things on the sideline. I get saying "if" your star player was not out the record would be much different, but that cuts both ways. Again, I don't know if Hill played or not. But...

    Five 6th region teams have only a single loss to another 6th region team and those 5 are now ranked in the Top 5. As the rankings get toward the late part of the season, focus is going to be on regional records and which teams are likely to make noise in the tournament to advance to Rupp Arena. After all, what really matters is getting to Rupp in March and everything done up to that point will become a side note. So here are the new rankings...

    Yes they have and a big part is they are missing their "go get a bucket" guy from last season, Chance Moore. He is really missed and his scoring is hard to replace from any single person. It has fallen on those big three mentioned, but if any one of them has an off night it shows. Price has been outstanding in January, but Wales has been in a shooting slump in January. When he is shooting well and scoring at a high clip Fern Creek is very...

    I am pretty much in agreement with what you both are saying, they are not a great team which is why there are 8 or so teams well ahead of them in the 6th. I see they are 1-2 against 8th region teams beating North Oldham by 20 and losing to Spencer by 11 and South Oldham by 6. The are athletic, can shoot, can play defense and they have a very good coach. Not too long ago they played Butler to a 1 point loss. So on any given night they have...

    Not surprised by this at all. Iroquois might be the 9th or 10th best team in the 6th region, but they play a brutal schedule which prepares them to play some of the better teams in other regions and come away with a victory. It says a bunch about the 6th, but this happens almost every year.

    You can't pick Trinity for sure and then include Ballard as a possibility. Ballard will be eliminated if Trinity advances to State. Same for Lafayette, if Scott County is for sure, that eliminates any other 11th region team.

    All three of FC's guys are struggling with nagging injuries a bit. Price has a bad finger on his shooting hand but it must not be bothering him too much as he had 29 with 10/10 at the stripe. Wickliffe had 15 but is still nursing a knee issue, and Wales had 13 but his quickness and mobility is off still recovering from a bad ankle sprain in the LIT. I would say not 100% full strength, but they are moving ahead in the right direction.

    Yes, PRP's record may not be so glossy but nobody is actually wishing to play them come tourney time and especially so if they get all the pieces back together. They could be really tough if that happens and they find the chemistry needed.

    Thanks Dawg and you are exactly right, the 21st & 22nd are loaded this year with a team that will finish outside the Top 2 in their district that could win many regions. It also stresses the significance of gaining the #1 seed for district play, never has that been so important in those two districts. What an unbelievable year for fans of the 6th region. I hope we continue to get this dialogue going throughout the rest of the season. No...

    Yes, it will take a great run. Starting with districts you likely need to come out a #1 seed. That means two wins and then 3 in a row at regionals. So a team most likely must put 5 wins in a row together. That narrows the field somewhat. In those Top 9 (including Iroquois) any team could beat any of the other 8 on a given night. But to put a string of 5 wins together narrows the group capable of going all the way. That is probably 4-5...

    Going to be a little shorter edition due to an out of town trip, but wanted to be sure to get a new Top Rankings out in the 6th region as we have a new #1 for the first time since early in the 2016/2017 season, the Doss Dragons. Doss outworked the Fern Creek team to flip rankings with the Tigers and claim the #1 spot with a 65-59 victory in the LIT semifinals on Saturday. But Butler is right there with them as they actually played eventual LIT...
